US Census on the Web,
incl. American FactFinder

Improve your ability to find and use census data on the U.S. Census Bureau's website.

This workshop will explore the website and provide a live demonstration of American FactFinder, the Bureau's interactive database engine. With American FactFinder you can display basic facts in the form of a predefined table or thematic map, use the data sources feature to go directly to pages where you can create your own compilations, and use the data sets feature to access all available tables for the Decennial Censuses for 1990 and 2000, the American Community Survey conducted annually since 1996, the Economic Census for 1997, and Population Estimates conducted annually beginning in 2000.

Census Bureau Information Specialists Rosemarie Fogarty, New York Regional Office, and Whittona Burrell, Philadelphia Regional Office, will share their expertise at these free training sessions for Rutgers students, faculty, and staff.
